Sister Helen Prejean, writer, activist; Joseph F. Savage, Jr., chairman, NE Innocence Project

Author and activist Sister Helen Prejean has been instrumental in sparking national dialogue around the unanswered questions surrounding the death penalty: Should any state have the power to execute? Is the death penalty appropriate retribution for particularly heinous murders? Does it deter crime? Does it fundamentally violate human rights? Prejean's book, Dead Man Walking, which portrays her experiences as a spiritual advisor to death row inmates, became a best seller and spawned the Oscar-winning movie of the same title. Sister Helen Prejean discusses her life, her work, and why she continues to fight to end capital punishment.

Sister Helen Prejean, C.S.J., is the author of Dead Man Walking: An Eyewitness Account of the Death Penalty in the United States and The Death of Innocents: An Eyewitness Account of Wrongful Execution . Sister Helen currently works with the Death Penalty Discourse Center, the Moratorium Campaign, and the Dead Man Walking Play Project. Joseph F. Savage, Jr., Esq., partner in Goodwin Proctor LLP's litigation Group and Chairman of the New England Innocence Project, moderates this event.
